The rare PURPLE FLOWERING Uncarina!! Amazing purple flowers with dark nectar guides in the white throat of the flower. 

This beautiful tree will grow a nice, fat caudex up to 3 feet in diameter. It has soft, fuzzy leaves. It is partially decidious-- it will lose most leaves in winter but smaller, immature leaves remain during dormancy; this is based on a Florida winter where it does not get below 45 degrees too often. The leaf-losing mechanism is based on sunlight, warmth, and water availability.

It is not cold hardy and needs protection from freezing and near freezing temps. This tree loves a lot of water and fertilizer during the growing season when the leaves are on the tree. During the dormant period, keep it relatively dry (water once every two weeks if the tree is leafless). This tree loves full sun all the time, and can tolerate it even when dormant.
